Design and implementation of stakeholder-driven initiatives that contribute to the goal of global decarbonisation alongside sustainable development.
Climate change and sustainable development are closely interlinked. Many countries are developing strategies to integrate climate objectives into their national development goals, linking the implementation of the Paris Climate Agreement and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
We support the development of national or sector specific low-emission economic development strategies and the implementation of their building blocks such as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and Long-term Low GHG Emissions Development Strategies (LTSs) under the Paris Agreement, with the aim of ensuring that climate change considerations are integrated into national as well as sector-level planning and implementation processes. This includes the analysis of mitigation options in key sectors such as power, transport, buildings, agriculture or industry and their associated climate and development benefits, the conceptualisation of policy measures and programmes and the development of associated institutional structures and capacities for their implementation. We support stakeholder-driven initiatives and collaborate closely with local experts to make best use of local, national and international knowledge and expertise in the area of climate change and sustainable development.
NewClimate experts have supported governments around the world, including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ethiopia, Georgia, Grenada, India, Indonesia, Lebanon, Kenya, Malawi, Maldives, Mexico, Mongolia, Morocco, Peru, Philippines, Samoa, South Africa, Tanzania, Thailand, Tunisia, Uganda and Vietnam.
The aim of the project is to create the enabling conditions to make finance flows consistent with low-carbon development pathways in three Latin American countries and to create an improved policy and regulatory framework to mobilise the investments needed to achieve the long-term goals of the Paris Agreement.
Key mitigation technologies, i.e. renewable power generation and battery technologies, are substantially cheaper now than projected in 2015. This project investigates the potential impact of these investment cost reductions for three countries: Argentina, Mexico, and Indonesia.
In this project, NewClimate Institute in collaboration with Agora Energiewende and local research partners, looked at the impact of de-risking measures on the financing cost of renewable energy investments in two countries in South Eastern Europe (SEE), Greece and Serbia.
